What does your typical work day look like from waking up to going to bed?

I’m in bed most of the day unless I need to use the rest room or open the door for my Uber eats. I don’t think this healthy, but this the life I’ve chosen.

Well, I generally come in at least fifteen minutes late. I use the side door. Uh, and after that, I just sorta space out for about an hour. I just stare at my desk but it looks like I'm working. I do that for probably another hour after lunch too. I'd probably, say, in a given week, I probably do about fifteen minutes of real, actual work.

Not law related - but I thought this was a great post since I’ve read comments on here about women not having met “the one” yet (myself included). Happy Monday & remember to always put yourselves first. ✨

Is my boss BSing me?
I work at a tech company.
After 4 years working on the same team being the only 1 designer for all design related matters, ~230 projects, directed many of them with talented artist, studios.
Approximately 60-70hrs a week. No time for vacation, always working over weekends, no holiday break (there’s no back up).
I’m still rated as junior - low level designer ;)
I was told that I’m not experienced enough because I didn’t learn from any directors.
